It’s too bad that the β€œofficial” list of companies you linked doesn’t sort them based on how much Go they use. For example, my company uses it for a majority of our backend services but that’s not super apparent from that list lol. I also wonder if it’s worth to add sponsors of Golang conferences? gophercon.com/page/1320031/sponsors since usually they use the language of the conference they support (though might have to research each company to be sure)

Thanks for this list!

Sound great but the sponsors list suffer from the same problem, their products are mostly written in Java and C++, but it contains some companies that have relevant Go positions (like CrowdStrike).

That's so few jobs compared to "other" Listings like Node.js, Python or Java. Plus most of those companies are somehow pretty selective on their process. You have more chances to get a job in a company that can migrate to Go in the future than get a Golang Job with no previous Go experience.

That might be true, but this is mostly because Go is a niche language, it only solves a few engineering problems related to Cloud, Distributed systems and BlockChain.
I don't think (and I hope) it will ever be a mainstream/all-round language like those you mentioned.

Hey, great research. I also wrote an article about hiring a Golang developer and there you can find questions that may be asked on an interview. Hope it will be a good addition to your article and help others to succeed.
